Women’s Bar Association Law Student Committee Seeking Members

10.23.13

The Women’s Bar Association Law Student Committee is seeking law student members to facilitate WBA events at your law school.  Joining the Committee provides an invaluable opportunity to get involved with the WBA, grow your professional network, and plan events throughout the year! 

Membership in the WBA is required for committee members, but all are welcome to our first organizational meeting on Tuesday, November 5, 2013, at Pierce Atwood LLP (and joining the WBA is easy!)

The WBA was founded in 1978 as an organization where women lawyers in Massachusetts come together to build important personal and professional relationships. The WBA is about women helping women. When you join the WBA you can expect leadership opportunities, rewarding work on our committees, a networking forum for business development, and more.

It’s never too early to get involved and start building your professional network, and the Law Student Committee is designed to meet the needs of women law students. Along with facilitating committee meetings, the Law Student Committee sponsors annual Mentoring Circle programs at area law schools. These Circles are informal question and answer sessions with law students and panelists who are practicing attorneys, often alumnae of the law schools. In past years, members met at Suffolk University Law School, Boston University School of Law, Boston College Law School, Northeastern University School of Law, New England Law, Massachusetts School of Law, and Southern New England School of Law.
